Nice stay usual high standard. Would be nice if the people would focus on the normal people at the hotel rather than the attendees of international summits. They have upgraded the pool area recently to be a bit more child friendly. The menu selection around the pool and in the restaurants has not changed in the last 3 years. It's...
